Aeronautics, aircraft and manufacturing recruitment agency Bristol
Sigma Recruitment are one of the leading independent recruitment agencies covering Bristol. Business in Bristol has always had a long association with the sea and its ports. Aeronautics played a major role in the economy of Bristol in the twentieth century, and aircraft manufacturing became an important sector based at Filton and Patchway (British Aeroplane Company and Rolls Royce). In the 1960s, Concorde assembly lines were based in Filton.
On 26 November 2003, Concorde 216 (G-BOAF) made the final ever Concorde flight, returning to Filton airfield to be kept there permanently as the centrepiece of a projected air museum.
The major aeronautical companies in Bristol now are BAE Systems, Airbus, Rolls Royce, and Cameron Balloons, who manufacture hot air balloons. Every August, Bristol hosts the Bristol International Balloon Festival.
Bristol also has a worldwide reputation in the tobacco trade. The head office of Imperial Tobacco, one of the largest tobacco companies in the world, is located in Bristol along with an international cigar factory.
Other manufacturing sectors represented in the Bristol area include chemical manufacturing, automotive manufacturing, aerospace manufacturing, food manufacturing and pharmaceutical manufacturing.
